Overview

The Monument to the Conquerors of Space was erected at Prospekt Mira in Moscow. This outstanding city landmark has been jointly designed by architects Michail Barsh and Andrey Kolchin, and sculptor Andrey Faydish-Krandiyevskiy. September 28th, 1967 Soviet government initiates founding of the Museum of Cosmonautics at the foot of the Monument to the Conquerors of Space to commemorate nation's achievements in space exploration. The Museum of Cosmonautics opens its doors to public on April 10th, 1981, 20th Anniversary of the first manned space flight. Museum exposition gives a retrospect on how Soviet space science evolved starting from first man-made satellites subsequently followed by the first manned space flight, first space walks, Moon exploration programs, Solar system exploration programs and international space research programs. Intricate interior design and unusual exposition altogether created a unique individuality of the Museum. However, new times set new standards. 25 years since its first opening the Museum has been closed down for a massive renovation. Now the Museum shows all the newly accumulated information and latest technologies.

It gives you an insight in to Russian space travel. You get to see different space craft and promotions for space travel during the space race age. So if you like space, go.

Being an aerospace engineer myself, this museum touched me quite deeply: seeing the technology used for space travel and being actually able to touch it with your hands (only in a few cases) makes one wonder what a feat it was that the people of...More

My first gripe is that very few exhibits have descriptions in English. Only Russian. We took the audio guide but it doesn't come with headphones so you can't hear the guide clearly if there people talking nearby and there are. Especially the ubiquitous tour group...More

Incredible romp through the Soviet and Russian space programme. Huge collection of (mostly full-sized mockups) of various space craft. But also many landing capsules charred from re-entry heat. Belka and Strelka are stuffed and mounted in the front entry hall next to their (tiny) capsule....More

The Russian Cosmonaut and Space Museum is a must when in Moscow. A very good history of the Russian space effort. Excellent exhibits on the moon missions; Apollo-Soyuz; Russian cosmonauts; various Russian spacecraft; and a new display of the space posters from the communist era.

I would say, yes. I didn't pay much attention as I speak Russian too. I know they have guided tours also in English. Don't miss that attraction :)
